Firestone Destination M/T Vs. Toyo M/T

does any one on here run these tires?...

i noticed them on a couple rigs when i was out camping this weekend and the looked very versitile...also the guys running them had ford super duties so they are a heavier truck...both guys said they had exceptional road wear and did awesome in the mud....

if any one has these please post pics and coments on your opinions with these tires.. i am considering these or the Toyo open country m/ts i the sizes 265/70 r17 or 255/75 r17 once i get my lift

if you have experience with either the toyo's or the firestones let me know and please post pics...

i wanna sort out which would be the better bang for my buck

I haven't run either of them but know people that have. Hands down id go with the Toyo Open Country M/T's as long as money isnt an issue for you. They are one of the most expensive tire on the market. Only thing bad about them is that they are extremely heavy but if you have a V8 you shouldnt have a problem running that size. If I recall correctly there is only one member on the forum with the Toyo's.

The reviews on the Toyo's are great too. Plus they can take more off road abuse then the Destinations.

this is true and i agree with you 100% that the toyo is the superior tire by far....unfortunately they are $275 per tire up here

I'm running the Destinations. I love them. I've run them in snow, sand, and rock... as well as on the road. They do sing a little more than my wife's Wrangler M/Ts.

Side note, I just removed my spacers. Tires are a little quieter now they are tucked under.

It sounds like you had already ruled out the Toyo's due to the price. So why did you want us to give you input on the two tires if you had no intentions of making the purchase due to how expensive they were?

I ran a set of 31" Destination M/T's on my XJ and they were a great tire. Both are 3 ply casings so you'll get the same probability of a puncture if you plan to air down at all. Ultimately your research and your criteria are going to make the decision. As far as price goes I will second that the Destinations are worth the money.
